Summary of Allegations

The Central Government has received information regarding registration of FIR No. 08/2019 dated 29.06.2019 by Custom Commissionerate, Amritsar, under section 135 of Custom Act, 1962 and attendant sections of NDPS Act, 1985, relating to seizure of 532 Kg. of heroin and 52 kg of mixed narcotics on 29.06.2019 at integrated Check Post (ICP) and interception of two persons namely Gurpinder Singh an Amritsar based trader and Tariq Ahmed Lone from Handwara, J&K. The involvement of an international drug racket based in Pakistan as well as in Afghanistan has come to light.
